. Latin rite bishops are single, in imitation of the Apostles.

1 Corinthians 9:
1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are not you my workmanship in the Lord?
2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.
3 This is my defense to those who would examine me.
4 Do we not have the right to our food and drink?
5 Do we not have the right to be accompanied by a wife, as the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?
No, Latin Rite Bishops don't imitate the Apostles, Peter, or Jesus's brothers. There must be some other reason.
